55 Plus Communities are regarded as age restricted, oftentimes are gated communities and are designed for those who have attained the age of 55 and above. 

As people get older, they often find their housing needs change. Facilities and amenities that promote their well-being and facilitate a healthy lifestyle become priorities. 

Age-restricted communities or Active Adult communities are typically in close proximity to grocery stores, restaurants, shopping centers, fitness centers, recreational centers, and other amenities. 

These communities are often gated and limit the age of the majority of the residents.

For example, you may have 80 percent of the residency limited to people aged 55 and over. Usually, the minimum age limit for at least one resident is 55 years. 

The communities are set up in such a way that they accommodate older adults who desire to live in locations that do not have challenges perceived to occur when children are around. 

And, you know kids can be a little noisy playing everywhere, which for an older person who needs some peace of mind may seem bothersome. However, this does not mean that younger spouses cannot be allowed to live in the community. 

If one member meets the age requirement, then you can have younger spouses or significant others allowed to reside in the community. 

The active adult communities are well planned to meet the lifestyle of people in retirement age or those getting older. You may have facilities and amenities such as swimming pools, clubhouses, craft rooms, exercise facilities like a gym, sun decks, golf courses, and patios for gathering.
